faq for the application procedure

After submitting the application do I need to send the hard copies through post to the university?
No, uploading scans of the documents is sufficient. But the original documents are required for the enrollment here in Germany.
I don't have an appropriate English language certificate yet. Can I still apply?
The required language certificate can be uploaded later but has to be presented upon enrollment at the latest, as stated in the university regulations. Please be aware that it might already be required to get the necessary visa. Any admission is on the condition that you have the language certificate when enrolling here in Germany.
Can I also submit an IELTS Indicator or Duolingo English Test?
No, an IELTS indicator test is not enough. Duolingo Tests are not accepted, either.
